Auckland Transport has taken a number of steps to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our people, contractors, our customers and local communities amidst the COVID-19 situation. To limit exposure to COVID-19 as much as possible, we have taken the precautionary step of cancelling all cycling courses and events until further notice. We apologise for the short notice and any inconvenience this may cause – we believe this is an important and necessary measure. We continue to take advice from the Government and the Ministry of Health regarding COVID-19 safety precautions and will continue to review the situation on an ongoing basis. Read more information about COVID-19 on our website, which we will continue to update with the latest information, and also check the Ministry of Health’s website.


Attend a drop in session to teach your kids how to ride a bike.

Get involved in the #Learn2Ride sessions. Auckland Transport’s team of qualified instructors work alongside parents to get kids riding.

Whether starting on a balance bike or making the transition to a pedal bike, the team is there to help. Come along, chat to our instructors, try out some different bikes and get your kids riding.
